- CELTA ASI Summer School 2022 "From Stardust to Extrasolar Planets: Dynamics of Exoplanetary and Solar System Bodies"
2022-08-15 to 2022-08-27, Inverness and Sabhal Mor Ostaig, Isle of Skye, Scotland
The 2 week long CELTA-Cortina Summer Schools in Astronomy-Celestial Mechanics are back and in person!
We would like to invite you to the CELTA ASI Summer School 2022: 14th International Advanced Study Institute ASI Summer School in Celestial Mechanics – Theory and Applications (CELTA)
77th Scottish Universities Summer Schools in Physics (SUSSP)
Under the patronage of the International Astronomical Union Commission A4 Celestial Mechanics and Dynamical Astronomy
Aim of this School: To stimulate the cross-fertilisation of ideas between the communities who work in exoplanetary and solar system dynamics and to understand the latest tools and methods of analysis necessary for research into exoplanets, solar system bodies and planetary systems.
If you haven't been to a CELTA-Cortina style of Advanced Study Institute (ASI) School before – it is great fun – 2 weeks of collaborative working opportunities, exchange of ideas and learning of state-of-the-art mathematical and computational tools applied to the latest application areas in Celestial Mechanics, and delivered by internationally renowned lecturers.
The school will be delivered face to face, in residential mode. We welcome PhD students and early-career/established researchers to join us at the CELTA ASI Summer School in Scotland in August 2022.
Funding: A number of full and partial scholarships supporting attendance will be available to eligible PhD students, funded by UK STFC [Science and Technology Funding Council], SUSSP [Scottish Universities Summer Schools in Physics] and SUPA [Scottish Universities Physics Alliance]
The Website and Registration for the CELTA school is now open.
Apply here: https://caledonian.onlinesurveys.ac.uk/celta-asi-school-2022-from-stardust-to-extrasolar-planet
You are encouraged to apply before 7 June 2022 as spaces are limited.
Feel free to email us to add your name to our CELTA ASI Summer School mailing list to receive further announcements on this summer school and future summer schools of interest to Celestial Mechanics and Dynamical Astronomy.

- 17th Heidelberg Summer School on "Astronomy, astrochemistry and the origin of life"
2022-08-22 to 2022-08-26, Heidelberg, Germany
The "International Max Planck Research School for Astronomy and Cosmic Physics at the University of Heidelberg" (IMPRS-HD) invites early-career scientists to its 17th summer school.
We foresee that this will be a meeting in person, unless the pandemic situation will force us to move to an online event.
The Origin of Life on Earth is one of the most fascinating questions arising from the studies of our planet, and of the wider Universe. There are two main hypotheses describing the source of the organic compounds that could have served as the basis of a bio-genesis: (1) the in situ synthesis of pre-biotic molecules on the primitive Earth and (2) their formation in the Solar Nebula or in its parent molecular cloud, followed by their exogenous delivery onto Earth via asteroids, comets, and their smaller fragments.
The school will be devoted to the exogenous hypothesis leading to the origin of life. We will discuss how astronomy and theoretical and experimental astrochemistry act together to explore this hypothesis, and to go beyond our Solar System in the search for extraterrestrial life and other habitable planets.
Invited lecturers are:
- Paola Caselli (MPI Extraterrestrial Physics)
- Rob Garrod (University of Virginia)
- Thomas Henning (MPI for Astronomy)
- Martin McCoustra (Heriot-Watt University)
- Alessandro Morbidelli (Cote d'Azur Observatory)
- Latsis Symposium 2022 "Origin and Prevalence of Life"
2022-08-30 to 2022-09-02, ETH Zurich, Switzerland
The main scientific program of this interdisciplinary 4-day event will consist of 7 sessions:
- Planet formation and volatile delivery
- Young Earth
- Emergence of molecules and life
- Biogenesis and first cells
- The rise and evolution of complex life
- Life in extreme environments
- Statistics and atmospheres of exoplanets
We plan the symposium in hybrid format, with 250-300 colleagues participating in-person in the main building of ETH Zurich, but the talks will also be live-streamed and recorded to allow for remote participation for a larger audience.
More details - in particular a pre-registration form - can be found at the symposium website, which will continuously be updated:
- 4th International Workshop on Microbial life under extreme energy limitation – MicroEnergy2022
2022-09-05 to 2022-09-09, Sandbjerg Manor, Denmark
- 73rd International Astronautical Congress (IAC 2022)
2022-09-18 to 2022-09-22, Paris, France
2022-09-18 to 2022-09-23, Granada, Spain
It has been a while since we could meet in person at our annual EANA meetings! However, the EANA council decided last year that we will from now on continue with biennial in-person EANA meetings (alternating with EAI-BEACON) with a virtual meeting in the years in-between. This will allow our European Astrobiology community to attend both meetings and to be exposed to Astrobiology science from different perspectives, without the danger of oversaturation in Astrobiology meetings. We can now confirm that our next annual meeting, EANA2023, will be an in-person meeting, details will be announced later this year. However, we realize that with the BEACON 2022 conference having been postponed to next year, the Astrobiology community is now in the severe need of an in-person meeting for 2022.
We are therefore happy to announce that for this year we decided to arrange the following possibilities for our community to get together instead of holding a virtual annual EANA conference.
The annual EuroPlanet Science Congress (EPSC) conference brings together the European planetary science community and takes place during the entire week of 18-23 September 2022. Astrobiology-related sessions at EPSC (organized or co-organized by EANA) will be scheduled at the beginning of that week. It is still possible to submit session proposals until 2 March 2022.
We are also happy to announce that AbGradE in collaboration with EPEC, the Europlanet Early Career Network, will organize sessions dedicated to Early Career Scientists. EANA@EPSC will therefore specifically offer a platform for early careers to network and to present their work. Travel bursaries will be offered for EANA@EPSC.
We hope to meet many of you in person this year at the EPSC conference, and of course in 2023 at our next in-person biennial EANA Astrobiology Conference.
